Fissures within Marine-turned-cabbie Robert De Niro deepen violently as he navigates a distressed and distressing NYC; per Kael, “as Scorsese has designed the film, the city never lets you off the hook.” Startling even by ‘70s cinema standards, the movie generated box office, Oscar nods, and watercooler talk that has never abated. Screenwriter Paul Schrader had been a core protégé of Kael’s; estranged by the time the film opened, they would eventually reconcile.
